The role of histone H2A and H2B post-translational modifications in transcription: a genomic perspective.

Abstract

In eukaryotic cells, the genome is packaged with histones H2A, H2B, H3, and H4 to form nucleosomes. Each of the histone proteins is extensively post-translationally modified, particularly in the flexible N-terminal histone tail domains. Curiously, while post-translational modifications in histone H3 and H4 have been extensively studied, relatively little is… (More)
